Pipe Trouble Creators Respond To Controversy

pop sandboxThe makers of Pipe Trouble, a game pulled from public broadcaster TVO‘s website under severe pressure by media and industry, say their game has been the victim of rampant misinformation and unfairly branded by critics as being an advocate for eco-terrorism. Pop Sandbox, which produced Pipe Trouble, says the game is clearly intended as over-the-top satire — and an engagement tool — that promotes a balanced approach to natural gas development. The game was created to drive awareness about the Six Island Productions documentary film Trouble in the Peace, and prompt a larger discussion surrounding natural gas production.

Introducing Pipe Trouble For iPad And Android Tablets

pop sandboxPipe Trouble takes a clever new spin on an old arcade classic and uses over-the-top satire to explore ongoing real-world issues surrounding the exploitation of natural gas. Tasked with building their own pipeline, players struggle to balance using the least pipe to make the most money against the impact on local environment and neighbouring farms. On the right, a gas company rep oversees budget and pushes to create the most direct economical route in a race against time. Meanwhile, on the left, a volatile farmer gauges impact on the area and community. Lay your pipeline too close to the pastures and risk springing a leak that kills livestock and makes people sick. Build through forest or near residences and incite protesters that block your way. Suffer a leak or otherwise incite local outrage and you risk sabotage that could sink the operation.
